This rum makes me reminisce about exotic islands with hot women using tons of sun lotion and walking around in bikinis smelling like oh so sweet coconuts. Maybe my memories cloud my judgment and you are probably thinking “what is Malibu doing here”? If you associate Malibu with underage girls and cheap booze you may not be that far off. Actually this is still cheap booze. However, this black edition is an upgrade that can’t be compared to the traditional Malibu. This is why: 1) It has gone from measly 21% abv. to 35% abv. 2) It is much darker, viscous, and spicier than its predecessor. 3) If you have female visit this is always a safe drink, even neat. 4) In contrast to many other coconut flavored rums Malibu Black is not overly sweet and it tastes like dry fermented coconuts and leaves a slightly woody aroma in your mouth. 5) It is also ridiculously cheap (around 15 bucks). So there are five reasons for you to get yourself a bottle. I know most of you are probably still shocked but I can give you my word that this is worth trying out.
VERDICT: If you like coconut rums you have to give this a try.
